MPM Events Ltd - Patrick Turner
Organiser, The World of Park and Leisure Homes Show
As a conference centre, the showground at Ardingly has always delivered a first class service. The venue is large and provides sufficient car-parking spaces. Being in the centre of Sussex - its easily accessible - no matter what direction you are coming from. The conference facilities are clean, spacious and elevated overlooking the grounds. The catering is exquisite and always served at the appropriate time. I would highly recommend this venue to those that run seminars, training days or management meetings.
Money Matters Seminar
Our first impressive of the room (Ardingly Room, Norfolk Pavilion) when we walked in was impressive, it was beautifully laid out. The food was excellent and there was nothing that could have been improved upon.
Sussex County Bowls Luncheon and Prizegiving
We have had so much positive feedback, including “the venue was great” and “the refreshments were excellent”. We can’t thank you enough for all your support – it made all the difference and I know it will lead to many more local events. This was a great start to the scheme in a fantastic setting.
Mid Sussex South Community Voluntary Service
I just wanted to say very many thanks to all involved with organising and catering for Mother's funeral tea. From our perspective, from set up to close, it could not have been smoother and, given the circumstances, it was lovely to know that everything was in hand so that we had nothing to worry about. We cannot think of anything that could have been improved upon and it was exactly as we had hoped for. Our guests were comfortable and relaxed and they obviously enjoyed the food - some very favourable comments were made with recommendations to others along the lines of 'you must just try.
